    Did a quick comparison between my 5S (left) and the 6s (right). Interestingly, the 6s had to bump the ISO a bit more than the 5S but still the noise is so much better under control.

    It's definitely better, but still not close to premium compact cameras.

    I wouldn't say it kicks ass but it definitely looks a lot better than it used to.

    Yup, same as the others' opinions, it's certainly not god-like, but it's still much better than the 5S.

    Yeah, it's an improvement from previous models for sure, but I'm still not seeing as much detail as I'd like to with the new camera (in any light) and it seems to blow out highlights easy.

    Please compare them both in different scenarios, daylight, night, I wanna check for the crappy noise reduction Apple implemented...

    No one said that. CCD size is a key factor for low light photography so I think that is an unfair comparison. Full frame DSLRs are much better than premium compact cameras as well.

    Oh totally, but I pointed out premium compacts in particular for a reason because that's a key comparison I make for myself. Full frame DSLRs or even mirrorless are in a different class, but premium compacts aren't. Smartphones can get up to the quality of the RX100 IV for example in a few years.

    what we see here is the advantage of 4 more MPs that make the noise look more accurate,
    and therefore "better".
    i don't know the amount of light in that pic, so that depends,
    but it's still a lot of noise (i wonder what's the ISO - can you change the ISO?)
